Singh to Solanki, FOUR, cut off the back foot just in front of point

England 10/0   VS Solanki 5* (3b 1x4)   RP Singh 0.3-0-6-0

Sreesanth to Maddy, FOUR, outside off, width, and he cuts forcefully through point, puncturing some of the pressure... but only until the next ball

England 16/0   DL Maddy 8* (7b 1x4)   S Sreesanth 1.3-0-8-0

Singh to Maddy, FOUR, stays over for the right hander, pushes it across him, a touch of room, and it's helped on its way courtesy of an outside edge off a back-foot cut

England 23/0   DL Maddy 14* (10b 2x4)   RP Singh 1.1-0-11-0

Joginder Sharma to Maddy, FOUR, a touch of width and cut behind point

England 34/0   DL Maddy 20* (14b 3x4)   Joginder Sharma 0.2-0-4-0

Joginder Sharma to Solanki, FOUR, calamity. RP Singh trips at third man on his way to trying to catch a huge top edge. He can only make a fumbling, desperate grope at the ball as it rejects his advances to fly on its merry way through. RP checks his studs afterwards

England 39/0   VS Solanki 17* (13b 3x4)   Joginder Sharma 0.5-0-9-0

Pathan to Solanki, FOUR, drags it a touch short, but room enough for Solanki to cut away off the back foot for a well-hit four in front of point

Joginder Sharma to Pietersen, FOUR, firmly struck in front of midwicket, Pietersen standing tall and delivering

Harbhajan Singh to Solanki, FOUR, short, outside off, and pulled high and in front of midwicket

England 78/1   VS Solanki 37* (24b 5x4 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 1.1-0-10-0

Sreesanth to Pietersen, FOUR, steps back to give himself room to drive strongly through cover

England 88/1   KP Pietersen 14* (8b 2x4)   S Sreesanth 2.2-0-16-0

Joginder Sharma to Collingwood, FOUR, stand and deliver. Collingwood steps inside the line and swats that firmly behind square. Top shot. A fraction too short, and the man drops back at deep midwicket

England 106/2   PD Collingwood 5* (2b 1x4)   Joginder Sharma 2.3-0-31-0

Joginder Sharma to Pietersen, FOUR, now he's too full, and the umpire is in danger as Pietersen drives hard and straight. Another boundary

England 117/2   KP Pietersen 35* (18b 3x4 1x6)   Joginder Sharma 3-0-42-0

Harbhajan Singh to Shah, FOUR, excellent shot from Shah, that's what England need. A pre-meditated sweep from outside off stump, and that races away to fine leg

England 133/3   OA Shah 5* (2b 1x4)   Harbhajan Singh 2.4-0-21-1

Sreesanth to Collingwood, FOUR, sweetly timed. Stepped across to clip an off stump full-toss backward of square leg. England are brawling. Sort of

England 145/3   PD Collingwood 23* (15b 2x4 1x6)   S Sreesanth 3.2-0-32-0

Sreesanth to Shah, FOUR, he stands still this time, and that's gone straight through deep midwicket. Top shot

England 151/3   OA Shah 10* (5b 2x4)   S Sreesanth 3.5-0-38-0

Joginder Sharma to Shah, FOUR, short-arm jab and that's another six! Joginder has the same glazed look as Stuart Broad, and England have a smidgeon of hope

England 166/3   OA Shah 20* (9b 3x4 1x6)   Joginder Sharma 3.5-0-56-0

Pathan to Wright, FOUR, down on one knee and slapped over the covers. Good, but not good enough

England 190/5   LJ Wright 10* (7b 1x4)   IK Pathan 3.3-0-27-2

Pathan to Flintoff, FOUR, Flintoff finishes with an emphatic thump that Harbhajan this time can't cut off. England reach 200 and save some pride, but it's India who march on

England 200/6   A Flintoff 8* (4b 1x4)   IK Pathan 4-0-37-3
